Chinook’s Edge School Division school bus drivers did very well at a recent competition.

They garnered all three top spots at the annual Central Alberta Bus Road-eo on May 6, 2023.

Kelly Frere placed first, Melissa Brodeur was second, and Arnold Begeman finished third at the event held at Notre Dame High School in Red Deer.

The event involves drivers going through a series of driving exercises meant to increase their skill as drivers, and therefore safety for students. There were 25 drivers participating from Chinook’s Edge, Red Deer Catholic Regional School Division, Wolf Creek Public Schools and Prairie Bus Lines.

Six drivers from Chinook’s Edge participated. Frere, Brodeur and Begeman will now move on to provincial competition at Nisku on June 3, 2023.
